NARS Cassiopeia is a moderately cool-toned, duochrome with a very light pink base and shift between pink, lavender paired with a frost finish. It is a permanent eyeshadow that retails for $29.00 and contains 0.05 oz.
NARS Cassiopeia Dual Intensity Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as an "iridescent electric pink." It's a cool-toned, pink-shimmered white with a bluish-violet sheen. Applied dry, it was sheer, and applied with a dampened brush, it was semi-opaque but was one of the least pigmented shades in the range. This is the kind of shade and finish that I think works particularly well on the inner tear duct and lower lash line. It can also be applied to the middle of the lid for a spotlight effect. It wore well for seven hours applied dry, eight hours applied wet. bareMinerals Skinny Dip (LE) is very similar. NARS Tropical Princess #2 (LE, $24.00) is cooler-toned, lighter, less pink. MAC Great Beyond #3 (LE, $21.00) is slightly darker. Dior Rosee (141) (LE, $30.00) is a cream product. Fyrinnae Unicorn (P, $8.25) is similar. Disney by Sephora Sick of Swimmin’ (LE) is less lavender. Urban Decay Aura #2 (LE, $18.00) is similar. MAC Fresh Ice (LE, $21.00) is lighter. MAC Young Venus (LE, $19.50) is darker. MAC Triple Impact (LE, $19.50) is very similar. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
